Customer Review

on 15 June 2010
Holly Johnson shows an unheralded talent for storytelling with this frank account of his rise to fame and subsequent travails thereafter. It deals with his mostly unhappy childhood, sexual awakening, fame, excess, the legal spat and courtroom drama with ZTT, and ends with the revelation of his HIV diagnosis. The chapters on FGTH and the fractious relationships with his bandmates are compelling. The central core of the book is relationships: his father, one schoolfriend, housemates, Paul Rutherford, FGTH's 'lads' and Jill Sinclair and Trevor Horn of ZTT.
The passages on his uncompromising father are at once hilarious and tragic.

It is an unfliching account of the price of fame, thouroughly readable and enjoyable.
